He’s been nominated for a GRAMMY, and now has 3 #1′s under his belt with his new song “Voices” making it to the top spot! [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chris Young[/lastfm] also made a little history by breaking a record with this song! One thats been in place for over 25 years!
Chris doesn’t have to wait till Sunday a the Grammys to be proud of what he has accomplished. Not many are happy to say they have made it to #1 on the country charts with any song, let alone 3 songs back to back. After all Chris isn’t just anyone considering his song “Voices” was first released in the summer of 2008 but only made it to #37. At that time they decided to come out with the number one hit “Gettin You Home,” which sky rocketed to the top of the charts! Some 2 years later “Voices” hit the radio again and this time went to #1!
The last time that a song was on the chart’s and was re-released to go all the way to #1 was with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Randy Travis[/lastfm]‘s “On The Other Hand” in 1986! That song only made it to #67 the first time and was also the first time in modern history for a song to be re-released on the charts to make it to #1!
#1′s are getting pretty regular for Chris Young considering that his first two singles off his album “The Man I Want To Be” made number 1! ”Gettin You Home” seemed to shoot up the charts in a record time and then “The Man I Wanted To Be” wanted to hang at #1 for a little too.
I know all the ladies will be going crazy when Chris plays this Saturday night at Coyote Joes!
I think what made this single so big is that every guy can relate. After all thats why Chris recorded the song because he felt he related to it so well a few times in his life!
Check out the last time Chris Young was in town on our Redneck Yacht Club! The boy knows how to party!
